Switching to synthetic oil question

Question

sirsunnyslayer

I've been running the manufactures recomended oil since new and now am thinking of switching over to a synthetic oil and I have a question. The motor in question is an oil injected carbureted two stroke.

Can a guy mix the two oils or do I have to drain what is left in the resevoir?

it will hurt nothing to mix the oil all synthetics are compatible with standard petroleum oils

Mixing shouldn't hurt anything. I ran mine lower than usual when I changed over just so the mix was less.

They will all mix. AMSOIL does recommend to minimize mixing. Run your current oil down until your warning light/buzzer kicks, then just top the oil tank off with the new. Never take a chance running one all the way out! Also, many are extremely difficult to drain, or at the least are very messy to drain.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
